Samsung One UI Watch Wear OS 3

At the Mobile World Congress 2021, Samsung introduced its Wear OS version called One UI Watch for the upcoming Galaxy Watch. Following its collaboration with Google, the new and unified wearable platform will feature One UI’s functionalities on top of the Wear OS.

Samsung said that the new interface is designed to make the Galaxy Watch and smartphone experience more deeply connected. At the same time, the company confirmed that its upcoming Galaxy Watch will become the first to feature the new, unified platform it jointly built with Google.

Based on Google Wear OS, Samsung One UI Watch brings performance enhancements, a more seamless experience between the Watch and Android smartphones as well as access to an even greater number of applications.

Surprisingly, Samsung confirmed that its upcoming Galaxy Watch (tentative name Galaxy Watch 4) featuring the new unified platform and One UI Watch will make its debut at the Unpacked event later this summer.

Together with the new unified platform, Samsung One UI Watch will present an entirely new Galaxy Watch experience. Once you install watch-compatible apps on your smartphone, they will be quickly downloaded onto your smartwatch.

Furthermore, if you’ve customized your clock app on your phone to show the time in different cities around the globe, this will also be automatically reflected on your watch. Besides, if you block calls and messages from your watch, they will now be blocked on your smartphone, too.

 

Adding to this, Samsung will offer an improved watch face design tool, which will make it easier than ever for designers to create new watch faces. Android developers will be able to unleash their creativity and release fun, new designs that will be added to Samsung’s collection of watch faces later this year.

Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 Pro

Samsung appears to be simplifying the naming scheme of the wearable Exynos chip. Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 7 is expected to be equipped with the first 3nm chipset, which would be called Exynos W1000.

The Galaxy Watch 7 might use Exynos W1000 chipset, claims SamInsider (via SamMobile). Samsung’s first Wear OS smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch 4, debuted Exynos W920, which also powers the Galaxy Watch 5.

Last year, the company introduced the Galaxy Watch 6, which features the new Exynos W930. Judging from the previous naming, it was assumed that the Watch 7 series would have an Exynos W940 processor.

However, the South Korean tech giant apparently decided to simplify its Exynos line. If the report is correct, Exynos W1000 will power the upcoming Wear OS smartwatches, the Galaxy Watch 7, Watch 7 Pro, and Watch 7 Classic.

  • Watch 7: Exynos W940 W1000

Launch Timeline

Samsung will likely introduce the Galaxy Watch 7 alongside the Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6. The company could hold the Unpacked event in the second week of July, just ahead of the Paris Olympics.

This year, the Watch lineup could consist of three models, an increment of one model. The Watch 6 has two models – Standard and Classic, however, the Watch 7 could bring Standard, Pro, and Classic.
